Metro have Chelsea fans moving over to the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they want our landlord to spill the beans on Lionel Messi.
The Barcelona star has been constantly linked with a move to the Premier League and now it seems that those rumours are circling once more after international team-mate Angel Di Maria claimed he could see the forward working with Jose Mourinho.
Di Maria knows both well of course having worked with the former Real Madrid manager in a successful spell, not to mention playing with Messi on the international stage for Argentina.
The Manchester United winger was speaking to the official FIFA website and claimed: “I don’t think Messi would have any problem working with Mourinho.”
Given Messi has had an issue working with several managers in the past, not to mention current boss Luis Enrique, we think a move could well one day be on the cards but the Argentine would have to realise that at Chelsea, there is only one boss and that is Mourinho!
Chelsea fans. Is there any hope of a Messi deal one day or is this rumour just going to do the rounds until the star retires? Let us know your thoughts below.
